PRIO Policy Brief

Mironenko, Olga (2010) Data Protection and Security in Civil Aviation, PRIO Policy Brief, 8. Oslo: PRIO.

​​

Despite the massive attention generated by the events of 11 September 2001, terrorist threats are not the sole issues of concern to the aviation industry, which must also address challenges presented by a range of other issues, including serious crime; attacks on the data integrity of communications networks; attacks on information and personnel management systems; chemical, biological, radiological and explosive threats, etc. However, implementation of most of the security measures that have already been put into practice or are currently being planned has generally taken place under the rubric of combating terrorism.
